Praise For…

"With research, perspective, humor, compassion, and emotional insight, Dimyan explores the tracks that endometriosis leaves on her body, life experiences, and her spirit, offering an essential addition to the literature of women's pain. Comparing the constant burden of pain to 'running drunk with a stack of china,' her story's weight is compounded as doctors and others minimize it. This innovative and generous book is equal parts memoir and treatment diary, offering the reader hope and companionship as well as reframing the pain experience." —Sonya Huber
